When the show is over, it's right at home layin' down cool jazz tones in after-hours clubs. The guitar features a laminated maple body with a select spruce top; maple neck with a rosewood fretboard; body, neck, and headstock binding; f-holes; 2 humbuckers, each with their own volume and tone controls; a 3-way selector switch; and gold hardware.

  • Really nice guitar but...

    As reviewed by JAMES UNGER on 5/15/2014

    I have had my Broadway for 8 years. Love the look, love the way it feels, and love the way it plays. That being said, the pick ups are something to be desired. I swapped the pick ups with Lollar low winds. You can go cheaper and almost as good with the Gibson version. I have an $800 guitar that sounds like a 1957 Gibson worth a lot more. Another thing to know, is the tail piece is not very practical. YOu need a really long D string. Many brands don't have a long enough D string. D'Adarios D string is barely long enough to get a single wrap around the tuner. But it's a cool guitar to play doing a Chuck Berry kick hop across the stage.

  • Best Bang for the Buck for a Jazz Box

    As reviewed by Bill McMannis on 8/16/2013

    I have owned my Epi Broadway over three years. This is a great guitar. Excellent fit and finish and a real value for the dollar. It is fine stock, but can be upgraded easily enough such as adding a tune-o-matic bridge. The Grover tuning machines are very good and should last for years and years. The pick ups are not bad, but this could be an item looked at to upgrade down the road as well as the pots. The PU selector switch is an Achilles heel, as is often the case with Epi's, but it can be replaced easy enough. Great tone. Nice solid neck: not for wimps.

  • Great Jazzbox for the $

    As reviewed by Keaggyfan on 8/18/2006

    If you are looking for an inexpensive jazzbox, this is it. The tones are very woody, rich and warm. The pickups aren't overly powerful, which is what you want in a jazz guitar anyway. The body is very resonant with some great overtones, but pretty resistant to feedback unless you are standing in front of your cranked amp--not what htis is made for. While the bridge pickup is not quite as useful alone, the neck pickup is especially rich and in the middle position, there are some great jazz tones as well. Put some flatwounds on this guitar and it will really come to life.
